Some of the unsolicited thankyous we've received:

The Macaroon Ceilidh Bandred star Thank you all for a magical evening. Everyone loved it and commented on what a great ceilidh it was. You did us really proud and were such a big part of our joy-filled day. [R & P, wedding, Glenridding]

red star Thank you so much to you and the band for providing the brilliant ceilidh music for our wedding. So many people said how much they enjoyed the music and dancing - including quite a few people who had never been to a ceilidh before! Thank you also to the caller who did a fantastic job at getting people on the dancefloor. We had a brilliant day and we're so glad we chose the Macaroon Ceilidh Band. [H & S, wedding, Grange-over-Sands]

red star Thank you so very very much for playing for us at our wedding. We thought you were brilliant and the best ceilidh band we've heard, we will definitely be recommending you. We very much appreciate everything that you did to make our night so magical. Thank you all so much again! [N & C, wedding, Glenridding]

red star Thank you so much to the band, and the caller, for a fantastic party last night! Everyone from the total novices to the seasoned ceilidh enthusiasts had a total blast. It was the perfect way to round off a completely wonderful day. [PR, wedding, Lorton]

red star Thank you and your caller so much for making our party so memorable. There are so many moments that we recall and smile at... the arches with 4 year olds determined we were going underneath... the lovely Unst Wedding March (I'll never hear that and not cry now) and dancing like idiots all evening. Our friends were also extremely complimentary - one said that the sign of a good ceilidh is when your legs still ache two days afterwards! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, so a huge and heartfelt thankyou for your involvement in that. [B & J, wedding, Sedbergh]

red star Just a quick one to say a huge thank you for helping make our wedding celebrations such a magical occasion with your music. We all thoroughly enjoyed the ceilidh and felt extremely relaxed thanks to your warmth and humour. We will certainly be recommending you. [P & S, wedding, Dufton]

wedding dancered star Thank you so much for playing at the wedding. Everyone said what a fantastic band you are and that it was so refreshing to have live music, especially a ceilidh instead of the usual boring disco. It was great fun and the quality of your music and instruments superb. [MA, wedding, Armathwaite]

red star Thank you so much for the amazing music at our wedding. You really were fantastic - not to mention fun, friendly, talented, professional and an all-round bunch of thoroughly great people. We simply could not have chosen a better band. I'm sure you'll continue to put smiles on faces every time you play. [S & P, wedding, Eskdale]

red star A huge thank you again for providing such brilliant music and entertainment for us on New Year's Eve. All the family were still buzzing about it the next day and saying how we all thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening, The music was first class and the calling so patient especially with the children and dog! so thank you for making my birthday and our New Years Eve such a wonderful night to remember. [LW, New Year's Eve and birthday party, Coniston]

red star Just wanted to say thank you for such an incredible evening on Monday night. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and all those who have never done a ceilidh before are hooked! So yeah just really wanted to say a massive thank you! I hope you all enjoyed the evening as much as we did. If you guys ever need a recommendation I'd be more than happy to help! Anyhow thanks again, hope to use you again some time in the future! [PD, 21st birthday party, Penrith]

wedding dance Amblesidered star Thank you all so much for playing so brilliantly at our wedding reception in June. I haven't had such a good dance in ages! Your music and your boundless energy really set the whole place alight! Many, many of our guests said what a brilliant time they had dancing - I think it is one wedding which will be talked about for years to come! We could have carried on dancing forever (though my feet might disagree!). We hope we can come and dance with you all again in the future/soon. With enormous thanks again. [P & V, wedding, Windermere]

red star Thank you so, so much for the wonderful music last Saturday. By all accounts, we are told, the party was a great success, and that is very much due to your music. Many people have said how much they enjoyed the band. And we loved your demonstration of the pipes at the end! Really - you were brilliant. [P & C, birthday party, Staveley]

red star We wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the rest of the team for playing at our wedding.  You were relaxed and attentive at the same time and took such care before the day to work out what we wanted and then absolutely delivered.  We appreciate your patience in the light of the (inevitable?) delay and the waltz was great both in tune and choreography.  The ceilidh was very popular and enjoyed by all our guests. The photos show most people hit the floor and I've been to weddings when that hasn't been the case. All in all we all had a brilliant party and thank you for your important part in that. [A & A, wedding, Ambleside]

red star We are writing to thank you for the wonderful ceilidh you put on for our wedding reception in August. The music was superb, and it was the perfect way to round off our wedding day. Everyone really enjoyed it, and we cannot thank you enough for your wonderful contribution. [D & M, wedding, Ambleside]

Rydal ceilidhred star Thank you so much for the amazing music you played at our wedding in September. Our guests really enjoyed it as shown by the number of people on the dance floor. I wish it had been easier to dance in my dress! If you ever need a recommendation, we would be delighted as we all thought you were excellent. [C & C, wedding, Lake Windermere]

red star I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your band for playing for us on Sat, it was truly a wonderful evening and everyone seemed to have a great time.  We raised over £****, which is fantastic. but could not have done it with out the generosity of yourselves. I have had so much positive feedback, and everyone seems very keen for another one next year, so i shall keep you posted. If you are playing at any local public events do let me know, as i didn't get to do as much dancing as i would like, and a lot of my friends have now got the ceilidh bug. [EJ, charity ceilidh, Old Hutton]

red star Just a quick message to say thank you so much for Saturday night. It was great that your band were able to be part of J and A's special day. Everybody really enjoyed your music and your enthusiasm. You really kept the party going and the young people dancing! [SN, wedding, Coniston]

red star It was a lovely evening and everyone (including myself) thought the band and caller were brilliant. We definitely want you to come back again. [MB, community ceilidh, Coniston]

red star I wanted to write to express my thanks & admiration at the turn you all put on at our do the other day. You all hit the spot perfectly and really did get virtually everyone dancing. You were all so tireless - playing for 3 hours or so - amazing. The caller was great and managed to get most of us to understand - though I do remember getting in a knot at the end but that was totally my & my friend Ingrid's fault for not listening. The amusing thing was how 8 yr old children had it perfectly & got a bit indignant that we were being rubbish! I hope you have a good summer - keep the lakes & their guests on their toes! Many thanks. [K & H, wedding, Coniston]
